Recently visited London (again)

Posted: September 12, 2011 in Uncategorized

After a gap of about 15 years, I visited London, UK from August. 30 to Sept. 4 to attend the annual meeting of the Royal Geographical Society/Institute of British Geographers. I spent Saturday exploring the city, mostly by foot because there were so many line closures on the Underground. I visited Covent Garden, saw the London Eye, the Millennium Bridge, and the Tate Modern Museum. I particularly noticed a few people-friendly changes. The maps posted outside every Underground station and in other strategic locations — each one had a map with a 5-minute and 15-minute walking radius, as well as key sites of interest highlighted.
